I don’t even care. I mean I’ll vote, but I am feeling helpless and hopeless. There is SO MUCH hate and division in this country. It’s not going away... and even so people don’t see the real stories. We just argue and blame and assume, and I think it’s what the powerful want. I tried to stand up to injustice and got told it’s not my place? So now I don’t feel like doing anything but staying in my bubble.

So as a white person, I’m told I should use my “privilege” to help POC. But when I fucking AGREED with BLM, I’m told to stfu because I’m a white woman over 35. So I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t no matter what. I’m the villain. Ok gotcha. Head back on the sand I guess!

So if all the mothers with children don't have to wait in regular lines, wouldn't they just end up in a line of mothers with children?

I'm very deeply saddened and shocked by news of the shooting in Gilroy, CA, which is only 35 minutes from me. I've attended the festival before and I'm often in the area for work. Sending hugs and prayers especially for the families who lost a dear loved one today.

In response to a confession. Tacobelle, I bring it up because I'm sick of people pretending like this is a new problem. I get it. I hate Trump, too. But I want a solution, and to find a solution, you have to look at the history. Unless, of course, people weren't looking for a solution; they just wanted to spew more unhelpful crap, which I'm completely exhausted by. Again, it's sad that just by bringing up the history, I'm looked at as defending Trump/bashing Obama. I guess that's the world we live in now, though. Screw critical thinking and problem solving. Let's just shit talk about the other team.

In response to a confession. I didn't say they were here legally, I said non-criminal meaning they didn't have criminal backgrounds. I've heard the myth many times that Obama (who deported more illegal immigrants than any other president) only deported those with a criminal history, which is bullshit. Look, I liked Obama, too, but he was far from perfect. I don't have the cult-like mentality towards him. He absolutely put kids in cages on a large scale and was cool with killing kids in unmanned drone strikes. A little research will tell you all of the above is true. It's sad that you see it as me defending Trump, when all I'm doing is telling the truth about a previous president.

In response to a confession. Yup, I understand all of that and I never said immigrants shouldn't be allowed insurance coverage. I'm saying it's absolute bullshit to charge working poor American citizens a penalty for not being able to afford ridiculously expensive insurance that doesn't cover jack shit, and then in the same breath say that people who are in the country illegally should get free coverage. That's what Biden is offering up and it's WRONG.

In response to a confession. Biden has said he wants to bring back the penalty to punish Americans, while providing free healthcare to illegal immigrants. I think that's what the OP was referring to?

A huge part of the problem is that Americans think that health care COSTS what they are being CHARGED for it. It doesn't. Ask.... shit, any other country in the world. You are being grossly overcharged for everything. No wonder Americans are so worried about how to pay for universal health care. They think health care costs a fortune. Not for the rest of the world, America. This is what your government has done to you, brainwashed you into thinking that is what it actually costs. You just don't know any better. Time to wake up and take a look at what's possible in other places across the globe. This is NOT as good as it gets, America. Do better.

In response to a confession. I agree with the ACA penalty, but I disagree with you on insurance for illegal immigrants. You realize that we all pay for their insurance anyway, right? I'm tired of people saying they don't want to pay for them (or anyone else who's uninsured). We already do! Why do you think a Band Aid at the hospital costs $20? Why do you think your premiums are so high? Because you're covering everyone else. We really need universal healthcare. Period. it works in just about every other industrialized nation. And, here's the kicker, it actually costs LESS than what we pay in the US. So you can pay less for healthcare, have the security of never losing your coverage, and have everyone covered for less than you pay now. I honestly don't know how people are against it. People talk about caravans. Well, there are actually caravans and bus trips of US citizens to Canada so they can get healthcare and prescription meds. And a lot of those people actually have insurance, but it's still cheaper in Canada.
